Ką veiksite

My experience consists of an authentic forest immersion at Pedra Branca State Park, located 50km away from Zona Sul and which is internationally known as IBA (Important Bird and Biodiversity Area). I visit this Park since 2003, it is three times the size of Tijuca National Park and it hosts the largest urban forest in the country. We will hike in a beautiful circuit part of the "Transcarioca" trails. We will visit the Camorim water reservoir and our final destination is the Quilombo Rock (735m) with a breathtaking view of the city. We will also enjoy a waterfall. We will pass by historic sites utilised by slaves that escaped at the end of XIX century. I will share my knowledge about the ecosystem and the history of the territory and the city since colonial times. By the end of the day you will have hiked approx. 15km in Atlantic Tropical forest. Most cariocas have never been here, I guarantee we will be off the beaten trails.
We meet at 7:00 at Botafogo.
8:00 arrival at the Park - I will drive us there in my car. We start the trail towards the Camorim reservoir. 4km hike (easy).
9:30 Camorim water reservoir
10:00 we continue towards the Quilombo Rock. 5km hike, moderate to difficult - last section assisted with a steel cable. Energy is needed.
12:00 Quilombo Rock
13:00 we start our return
15:00 Camorim waterfall
16:00 we leave the park and return to Botafogo

I will be more than happy to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about Rio's history and the territory where the Pedra Branca State Park lies, including its link with the slave period and the reasons to protect the largest urban forest in the country.

Kur būsite

I visit Pedra Branca State Park since 2003, it is the largest urban park in the country and also hosts the city's tallest peak (Pedra Branca peak at 1.025m). We will visit:
- Camorim water reservoir
- A section of the Transcarioca hiking trail
- Quilombo Rock
- Camorim waterfall
- Historic sites and ruins on the way. Highlight to the church "Igreja São Gonçalo de Amarante" at Camorim, built in 1625, one of the oldest buildings in the city

Felipe is the best for this trail to Pedra Branca, we got to hike for several hours, challenging but amazing. We got see the beautiful forest, water breaks with fresh born water where very pleasant, along with a panoramic view at the top of Pedra Branca, lots of beautiful shots were taken of the scenery, insects, arthropods, and so on. I totally recommend this experience. Loved it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It was such an enjoyable and interesting experience! The view on the spot Felipe showed to us totally worths the route level we had and even if it would have been more difficult! I recommend this amazing experience with Felipe to everyone!

Absolutely great hike. Yes it was a bit of a challenge, but totally worth it. It felt almost like in the wild, no other groups, just us and Felipe. And he is genuinely caring person, happy we met him, would not want any other guide.

Never thought I'd ever hike in the rain, Filipe gave me a lifetime experience. He could have canceled the tour because of the weather but when I asked to do it regardless he gladly agreed. I enjoyed the challenge and he made sure I was safe.

Cette expérience proposée par Felipe est une vraie expérience: une incursion au coeur d'une forêt préservée, une randonnée de 19km aller-retour avec des montées, des descentes, des pierres, quelques troncs d'arbre à enjamber... à l'arrivée sur la pedra do quilombo, la vue sur Rio de Janeiro à une hauteur de 735 mètres vaut tous les efforts physiques réalisés ! Pour ma part, la réalisation d'un tel effort physique et mental m'a apporté beaucoup de satisfaction, l'impression de réaliser un défi, de dépasser mes limites... Felipe s'est aussi montré très sympathique, professionnel et encourageant et m'a beaucoup aidée dans certains moments de fatigue. Je recommande beaucoup cette expérience mais je conseille de la réaliser en disposant d'une assez bonne condition physique et d'être assez reposé car il n'y a pas d'alternative en cas de fatigue, il faut faire le retour sur 9 km !
